Afropunk Fest London is in 4 days!
To celebrate the countdown, I chose five previously released Afropunk mix-tapes that signify the sign of the times we’re in. It’s unfortunate that some of the mix-tapes are now a year or two old and in most instances, there have been no resolutions nor repercussions for the way we’re being treated as a people across the globe. We’re still being killed and our lives still don’t appear to matter. Fortunately we have the strength of our ancestors and an unwavering resilience to fight for change. This mixtape is a tribute to a new generation of activists and to the activist in all of us.
